New home of cigarette racing factory in Opa-Locka, Miami.
Factory tour was unbelievable, they seem to have upped the level of style, design and quality in these boats and seeing merc 1075 twin blown engines lying around with no.6 drives ready to fit really makes you think...

Maybe this is going to change in the near future the gas prices are soaring up in the states, prices are now some places +US$5 / gal..

believe there was a big sell on it few years back, then it never really took off and a lot of marinas have pulled the plug supplying it..
